Pumped Up Preserved Lemons

October 22, 2012

When life hands us lemons, we preserve them. We know by now that combining lemons with a little salt and patience yields intensely fragrant, tender rinds and sweetened flesh that can be used in everything from Moroccan tagines to Bloody Mary cocktails. But Saveur raises the flavor bar by including spices in the preserving mix that bring out the bold flavors of the preserved lemon’s Middle Eastern and North African heritage.

The All for Farmers Market

We’ve joined forces with Tillamook to support All For Farmers—a coalition benefiting farmers across the nation—with a special market that gives back. Featuring Shop all-stars and a limited-edition Five Two apron, a portion of proceeds from every purchase supports American Farmland Trust’s Brighter Future Fund.

I cook for a living and then come home to cook for fun. When I'm not cooking, I'm reading or writing about food. It's safe to say I've found my calling.
